This unique book follows a standard, traditional historical approach. Central Asia is a vast, little-understood area of great strategic, political, military, and economic importance, which could be a source of future world instability. Scholars and policymakers will be interested in this source of updated and factual information about a little-known area of increasing significance.

Editorial Reviews

?The power of this one-volume authoritative source comes not only from its all-inclusive range that covers all Turkish ethnic groups but also from its analysis of the various intellectual paradigms that shaped the Turkic world in the last one hundred years. The chapter on Pan Turkism, '' for example, should be consulted by all those who want a crash course in this often misunderstood ideology. If there's one book you'd like to buy and read these days to know the Turkic world better, this is it.??The Turkish Times
